What is the relationship between the QEP, OSCAR, and Students as Scholars?

OSCAR, the Office of Student Scholarship, Creative Activities, and Research, is the home of the Students as Scholars initiative – it’s the name of the new office on the second floor of Johnson Center.  Our QEP (Quality Enhancement Plan), required for re-accreditation, outlined the new Students as Scholars initiative for undergraduate research and creative activities. Since Mason’s accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) was reaffirmed in December 2011, we’ve moved away from calling it the QEP. But, if you look at our lightbulb visual identity, you can still see the QEP in the filament.
